TOTAL noob here. I did my preliminary search here to see what I could find, I am having trouble with two things.
1ST: I am having trouble getting my Logitech Quickcam Communicate MP (S5500) to be seen by my machine. I did gut Windows all together and have been looking for some type of generic driver for the web cam. Any advice/help here?
Also, I seem not to be able to get Skype to run properly. I loaded the ubuntu version for the standard 32 bit machine and it is there, I can log in, but there are missing options that would allow me to seek out contacts etc. It feels incomplete, maybe I am wrong and need the cam operational or something before all functionality is there.....Pretty confused here.
I am on a Sony VGN A270P and running Helena if this helps.
Again any handholding and / or help in this would be much appreciated.
